Roommate Requests OptionalRoommate Requests are optional. Use it only if youhave a specific person in mind that you would like toroom with.If you do not have a specific person in mind thatyou would like to room with, skip this page and goon to the next.
Roommate Requests To request someone as a roommate (s)he must either already be a student at SUNY Delhi or, if they’re an incoming student, have already paid a housing deposit for Spring 2013 term. You may request up to 2 different people as roommates. Roommates must all be the same gender. It must be a mutual request—both people must request each other.
Roommate Requests Requests must be in before January 7 th. Requests made after January 7th will most likely not be honored due to a lack of availability. If one of the people is living on-campus Fall 2012 and will NOT have a vacancy in their room, they MUST contact the Office of Residence Life and move to a new room PRIOR TO LEAVING FOR BREAK at the end of fall 2012 term.
Roommate Requests It is YOUR responsibility, not that of Residence Life, to make sure your and your friend(s)’s roommate requests are done correctly and on time. If you have any questions, you should contact the Office of Residence Life for assistance. Although every effort will be made to give you the preferences you indicate, requests are honored based upon availability. Requesting something is not a guarantee we will be able to fulfill your request.
To request a roommate… Click “select” and you will get this box:
Enter the first two letters of your friend’s first and last names. (For some reason, this seems to work better than typing in the full name.) Click “Search”. Sa Sk
If someone matches, you’ll see somethinglike this:You may get more than one name returned in thesearch. Click the arrow on the right for a dropdown of all the names returned.If your friend is not listed, check with him/her tosee if (s)he has paid the housing deposit for SUNYDelhi yet.
If your friend’s name is there, select it and click “Confirm” and you’ll get this: It will say “unconfirmed” until this person also selects you as a roommate. Once your friend requests you as a roommate, it will say “confirmed” here. Both people must select each other for the request to go through.
If you made a mistake and do NOT want this person as a roommate, you can click “Select” again and you’ll get this screen: Click “Delete” to remove the roommate request. If you want to, you can click “Search” to try to find a different person.
Roommate Requests Both students must request each other for the request to go through. To Avoid Disappointment…. After you complete the contract, log back in and select “Edit Preferences.” Make sure that the answer to both these questions is “yes”: • Does your friend’s name appear after the words “First Choice for Roommate”? • Does the word “confirmed” appear after your friend’s name?Remember: Both requests must be in before January 7th.
Roommate Matching InformationIt is important that the student (not a parent) answerthese questions honestly, so we can do a betterjob matching roommates.
There are several rules regarding overnight guests.Please refer to the 2012-13 Housing Policy Guide.
Housing Preferences Page This is the page where you can tell us about your housing preferences. We house students primarily in the order in which we receive their housing deposits. If your first choice is available when it is your turn to be assigned, we will give it to you. Sometimes we have to go to lower- ranked choices due to availability.
Ranking the HallsPlease rank the halls in your order of preference. Please do NOT repeat a hall in your ranking.It does nothing to increase your chance of receiving that hall as anassignment, and it provides less input from you if we have to go to alower-ranked choice when making your assignment.
Transfer Students OnlyTransfer Students may indicate an interest in living in Catskill Hall or the Riverview Townhouses.If applying to live in the Riverview Townhouses, you must first read andagree to accept the terms and conditions set forth in the “2012-13Riverview Housing Guide” (link provided).
Special Interest Housing 8a – Associate Degree NursingOptional There are 3 different optional areas for special interest housing available to new students: • Golf-related majors (males) housed in Russell Hall • Nursing majors (females) housed in DuBois Hall • Veterinary Science majors (females) housed in DuBois Hall The Veterinary Science section is a Living Learning Environment (LLE) that requires an additional $50 charge per term to cover expenses related to a resource room, peer mentors and social programs. There is no additional charge related to the Nursing or Golf areas.
Special Interest Housing 8a – Associate Degree NursingBe sure to appropriately rank the hall associated with the special interest housing you request: Russell Hall for Golf, DuBois Hall for Nursing or Vet Sci LLE.For Example: If your first choice is to live in the Vet Sci LLE, you not only need to select the Vet Sci LLE, you also need to rank DuBois Hall as your first choice. If you select the Vet Sci LLE and rank Murphy Hall first and DuBois Hall second, we will consider your first choice to be to live in Murphy Hall and the Vet Sci LLE in DuBois Hall as your second choice.
Special Needs HousingOptional If you want to request special accommodations due to medical circumstances you may indicate this here. You will need to provide the Office of Residence Life with written verification from an appropriate licensed authority separately (fax 607-746-4086). We will contact you to let you know if your request has been approved or denied.
